Coatings for AWWA D-100 Welded Steel Tanks

by Bob Murphy

This past Thursday Tony Ippoliti presented the second in a series of Webinars dedicated to the Water Industry. Tony’s presentation covered the D-102 Standard¬† of AWWA and the products that Sherwin-Williams can offer to meet or exceed these requirements for potable water storage.

Pre-Construction Primer

In Tony’s presentation was highlighted the use of a shop-applied pre-construction primer on steel plate. Most of these primers are formulated and tested for compatibility with the weld processes so that they may be applied edge to edge without weld margins . Pre-construction primers used on interior surfaces shall have been tested and certified for potable water contact in accordance with NSF / ANSI 61, Drinking Water System Components-Health Effects, by an ANSI-accredited laboratory.
